Product overview:

Colour Display & digital Pointfinder with 4x zoom...........

The popular Leica DISTO™ D5 has been replaced with NEW & IMPROVED DISTO™ D510 model, standing for easy of use and effortless outdoor distance measurement.


The unique combination of digital Pointfinder and 360° tilt sensor allows measurements which are not possible with conventional distance meters. In addition, with Bluetooth® Smart and attractive free Apps, you are prepared for the future with:


Pointfinder with 4x zoom

IP 65 water jet protection and dust-tight

360° tilt sensor

Smart Horizontal Mode™

Height tracking

Bluetooth® Smart

Free App – Leica DISTO™ sketch


Simple and precise targeting - Pointfinder with 4x zoom
With the Pointfinder, the Leica DISTO™ D510 takes measurements with perfect accuracy and in unfavorable light conditions. This is a decisive advantage when working outside in sunny weather. Even if the red laser point is no longer visible to the naked eye, the target can be seen exactly in the crosshairs on the display.

Unlimited number of measuring options - 360° tilt sensor
The Leica DISTO™ D510 is equipped with a 360° tilt sensor. This means that it is not only possible to measure angles, but horizontal distances too! Combined with the Pointfinder, amazing indirect measurement options are provided. Hence, measurements are possible where no reflective target point is available e.g. when determining the height of a tree or when measuring the height of a reflecting glass facade. These could not be measured with a conventional laser distance meter.

Efficient height profile measurement
Using this function, the Leica DISTO™ D510 displays distances and height differences to an established reference point. This makes it easy to quickly make profile measurements, without having to use more expensive measuring methods. Also, this function can be used to check whether cross beams are straight, the levelness of existing floors, among other applications.

Quick sketching - Bluetooth® Smart with App
The Leica DISTO™ D510 is capable of more than just measuring. Measurement data can be conveniently and accurately transferred using the integrated Bluetooth® Smart Technology. The free app Leica DISTO™ sketch supports the creation of ground plans or tables on iPhone or iPad. Dimensions can even be entered onto photographs with no effort whatsoever.

Modern ergonomics 
Providing the simplest possible operation of complex measuring functions is a must for Leica Geosystems. The Leica DISTO™ D510 has been adapted to the user interface of modern cell phones. Furthermore your favourite functions can be assigned to a pair of selection keys, for quick access with a single button press. And the integrated, easy-to-understand help function does not leave you in the lurch on site.

Tough and easy to clean - IP 65
The housing and keypad are specially sealed against water and dust. Cleaning under running water is also no problem. Furthermore the laser distance meter can be used in all weather conditions, being dust-proof and water jet protected.

ISO Standard 16331-1 – The standard for laser distance meters
The range and accuracy of laser distance meters depend on light conditions and reflectivity of the measuring target. For Leica Geosystems it is important that the instruments not only perform under perfect laboratory conditions, but above all under the kind of everyday working conditions encountered on construction sites. This is why, working together with external experts, the company have developed a standard by which laser distance meters can be tested and compared with each other.

Calibration and servicing:

We check and calibrate all Lasers prior to dispatch, to ensure they meet or exceed the manufacturers published specifications at the time of shipment from the factory.
If you routinely work on large job sites, which require you to have a physical Calibration certificate, issued in your name and matched to the Laser via its serial number, you must ensure you tick the above box marked "Paper Certificate" (where applicable) to add a Calibration certificate to your order. The Certificate will then be generated and included with your Laser. Please note the issuing of a Calibration certificate DOES NOT delay or hold up the despatch of your Laser in any way.

Has any one tried this for measuring trees? im looking for a outdoor/waterproof laser measure. -It needs to be able to measure the trees total height. -record the degrees of lean, if it has one. -measure height to different branches there are many products which can do also this but there bigger and more expensive

    Hi Simon,

    The official documentation from Leica regarding the use of the Disto D510 specially lists measuring the height of trees "heights of trees, overhead cables and scaffolding; ground profiles, complex heights".

    This is achieved using the built in camera to exactly pinpoint the laser dot at the top of the tree.

    Although complex to calculate, I suspect it can also calculate lean angles but ultimately I suspect you are pushing the product to it's limits which is why significantly more expensive products designed specifically for that application exist in the marketplace.

    I hope this helps.

    If you have any further questions or require any additional assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.
    Best regards
